[Atlas 2011 des céphalées et des ressources dans le monde]
Despite that headache is felt at some time by nearly everybody, and almost half the world’s adults at any one time have recent personal experience of one or more of the three very common headache disorders, much is unknown about the public-health impact of these conditions. It is not known how, or how much, they affect many of the populations of the world, or how healthcare and other resources are utilized to mitigate their effects.
This first global enquiry into these matters illuminates the worldwide neglect of this common health problem, and reveals the inadequacies of responses to it in countries throughout the world.
In the WHO European Region, 80% of adults (aged 18–65) have suffered from tension-type headache, and 15% have experienced migraine over the previous year, according to the “Atlas of headache disorders and resources in the world 2011” by WHO and Lifting the Burden.

As many as 50 million Europeans suffer from headache and migraine, for many with handicapping effects. Compared to other large diseases, there lacks outcomes data to tell what are the best therapies and if prevention matters.

The Netherlands comes out number 1 on good headache environment, followed by Germany, Denmark and Austria.
